Luke Wroblewski wrote a book about web forms (Web Form Design: Filling in the Blanks) and he also covered some principles like: "Primary & Secondary Actions" ( http:// www.lukew.com/resources/articles/psactions.asp ), "Top, Right or Left Aligned Form Labels" ( http:// www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?504 ) or "path to completion", etc. (you can read also http://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2006/07/label-placement-in-forms.php)

So, IMO depending on what label placement you have (preferable vertically) and left-to-right + top-down rules, in order to have a good path to completion you should place primary action first (OK) and then secondary ones (++Cancel)
